Prancercise is (yes!) as cool as it sounds.

The 80′s workout is finally catching on decades later thanks to the Internet. Essentially, it’s a 5-minute workout– and a way of life. It was created by a lovely Florida woman name Joanna Rohrback who was inspired by horses to create the dance-walk workout in 1989.

Joanna describes the moves herself as “a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse’s gait and is ideally induced by elation.” Well that sounds like a dream. And we think this woman knows what she’s talking about, cause look at that bod! Not to mention she has a background in health and social work.

So how do you Prancercise? Get some ankle weights, dance music, a smile, and then start trotting like a horse on the sidewalk. But don’t get this video craze confused with the other horse dance “Gangnam Style”. Joanna writes on YouTube, ”This is not to be confused with the fad ‘Gangnam Style Dance’…this is the real deal a fitness program for those serious about looking their best, not like a FAT KANGAROO!”

Go ahead, you know you wanna try it! See below my friends.
